    SQ: 138 kg 3 x 5
    BP: 72 kg 3 x 5
    DL: 164 kg 1 x 5

    Back into progress - that's a DL PR for a set of 5. Felt better tonight than I did on Saturday. Looking over the numbers though, I had a pretty bad day on food intake. It comes down to whether turkey really provides less protein than chicken. Also, changed from a complete protein supp (including carbs and fat) to cellucor which is almost entirely protein but miraculously tastes absolutely amazing.

    Wednesday 17/01/18

    SQ 140 kg (308) 3 x 5
    P 55 kg (121) 3 x 5
    CU BW 4 x AMRAP (6, 5, 4, 3 plus 5 sec hold)

    Broken through my best squat for sets across with that effort. Press went up easier than I thought it would. I was struggling in the mid 50's before starting with Darin Deaton.

    Friday 19/01/18

    SQ: 142 kg (312) 3 x 5
    BP: 74 kg (162) 3 x 5
    DL: 166 kg (365)1 x 5

    Double checked the 2 kg plates on bench tonight. Definitely had 74 kg on this attempt. Stopped counting and did 6 reps in the last set though. Squat felt heavy but OK. Trying to tidy up some knee slide. It's difficult in the third set when you're focused on just getting the bar back up. DL felt heavy tonight. I think the noise in the weight room fell a few dB during the last rep.

    Monday 22/01/18

    SQ: 144 kg (316) 3 x 5
    P: 56 kg (123) 3 x 5
    DL: 168 (369) kg 1 x 5

    I really didn't want to go tho the gym tonight. Glad I did though. Nothing was "easy", but I didn't have to grind last reps out either. Just felt more fatigue than usual for a Monday. Tough weekend on DIY and keeping the kids off each other. Tendonitis was even less of a problem tonight.

    Also, that's a three plate squat in kg or lb (20's or 45's).

    Wednesday 24/01/18

    SQ 146 kg (321) 3 x 5
    BP 76 kg (167) 3 x 5
    CU BW 4 x AMRAP (6, 6, 4, 4)

    Felt a lot better about going tonight, but felt a bit off afterward. Didn't really want to drink my shake, and was a little shaky myself. Might have a virus coming on. After getting home and having a shower, it feels like the glands in my neck are a bit swollen.

    Friday 26/01/18

    SQ: 148 kg (325) 3 x 5
    P: 57 kg (125) 3 x 5
    DL: 170 kg (374) 1 x 5

    Squats were feeling pretty good, but tweaked my left obliques - also tendonitis now active in both elbows. Pretty tough to keep going, but made it through. Had to lift in the afternoon instead of evening because of the public holiday for Australia Day changing the gym's opening hours.

    I really wanted to get that 170 kg deadlift done. It came up pretty well, just took each rep a bit slower because of the pain.

    Awesome lifting. Your progress is solid. Hopefully the tendonititis doesn't keep flaring up and interrupt your gains.

    Thanks JT. These sets look a lot better than the last ones I posted

    Whatever I've done to my side is worse than the elbows.

    Monday 29/01/18

    SQ 149 kg (327) 3 x 5
    BP 78 kg (171) 3 x 5
    CU 4 X AMRAP (6, 6, 4+g, 0+g)

    Obliques improved over the weekend. Was not exactly comfortable during the workout, but wasn't scared of popping anything either.

    I've got to chatting with a master's Olympic lifter during training and he spotted me on my first squat set, which might have looked funny as he's 76kg to my 107 and 149 on the bar. I got a little cheer from the young lady in the next power rack which was nice, but of course, I had to finish out the next two sets.

    Chinups not so good tonight. Forearms were cramped up after third set, and I'd really had enough discomfort by then. The grind on the thirsd set was pretty epic.

    Wednesday 31/01/18

    SQ: 120 kg (264) 3 x 5
    P: 58 kg (127) 3 x 5
    DL: 135 kg (297) 1 x 5

    Deloaded SQ and DL to give my oblique a bit of a break. Concentrated on technique. Really had good control of knee-slide which has been the constant subject of feedback. Last DL went way forward, but I was able to pull it back in.
